Re: behavioral issues with 4 1/2 year old son

I just read everyones suggestions and I 100% agree consistancy is key.  But one suggestion I have not seen is have you tried ignoring behaviors?  It seems to me that he knows throwing things hitting etc gets to you therefore he gets attention, even if it is negative.  I know this is really hard, but have you tried not letting him know it bothers you and ignoring him.  That way he will not get the attention and he will stop a lot of these behaviors.  BUT at the same time, attention when he is doing something positive is always necessary here.  I hope this helps!  Good luck!  I know it is hard!  Stay Strong!
